Summer 1961 Air Movements Course at Kidbrooke.

 I am centre row second left as you look at the photo. Also in the photo back row 9th left is Geordie Daverson. Mentioned in the article on the Zambia Oil Lift of 1965, I believe it is the same Geordie who went absent at that time. I remember the names of those who went on to Khormaksar with me: Daverson, Dew, Keena, Fahey, Balfour and Le Gendre, and also Bob Maule who went on to Butterworth FEAF. I can't recall the names of any others but I believe the course instructor was Chief Waltham pictured 6th left front
